So, I recently acquired a book from the library and I'm so obsessed with it that I might have to consult amazon...
Any who - Aquamarine is the birthstone for March. Turns out, there is a legend saying it first came from a mermaids jewelry box, hence the name, and is said to bring pure love.
Not only that, apparently aquamarine can be very healing for the throat and neck. Especially if worn on a short necklace.
16" Birthstone necklace anyone? I don't know about you, but sore throats are still running rampant up here in the North.
This book I'm reading also has some great info about astrological signs and all kinds of cool uses for different stones.
Tell me, what's your sign? Or, which stone do you want to hear about next?
